Welcome

Hi Khris, and welcome to PortlandWiki! I like what you've done so far, and List of Portland's Mayors is a great addition. I hope you stick around while the wiki is still rough around the edges. If you need any assistance with anything, feel free to drop me a note on my talk page.

By the way, you can sign your comments by adding four tildes ~~~~. This automatically signs with links to your user page, user talk page (this page we're at right now), and the date and time you commented. You can customize your signature in your preferences if you wish. My signature (which is uncustomized) looks something like this: -kotra (talk) 22:13, 25 December 2009 (UTC)

(reply to your comment on my talk page) Excellent! Stuff that's too specific for Wikipedia is exactly what we want here. Historical content is a good idea. I noticed there was nowhere on the main page linking to history, so I put something there (Portland history), which in turn links to your list. Feel free to totally rewrite what I put there of course, it's just a temporary thing. Sounds great that you might be coming to the Wiki Wednesday! They're usually fairly fun and casual. -kotra (talk) 19:38, 26 December 2009 (UTC)

Re:Categories

Hi there, I replied to your comment on my talk page. I'm being pretty inconsistent about where I reply... sorry! -kotra (talk) 09:42, 3 January 2010 (UTC)

John Couch

Nice article with John Couch! I always wondered about that name. I'll see if I can expand it any. -kotra (talk) 22:02, 16 May 2010 (UTC)

Vernon neighborhood

As per your request, I've deleted Vernon neighborhood. If you have any other pages you want deleted just leave me a note on my talk page. By the way, thanks for all your amazing work on the wiki lately! -kotra (talk) 01:50, 22 June 2010 (UTC)

Thanks, Kotra! I'm trying to cut down on the dead-end links a bit, and get a bit of an infrastructure of categories for streets and neighborhoods. It's fun stuff during the slow periods at my work! :) Khris.soden (talk) 15:42, 24 June 2010 (UTC)

Hi Khris!

I noticed that you have an interest in the 1903 Olmsted plan for Portland Parks. This is also a major interest of mine, I was involved in a public process around the central parks maintenance facility a couple years ago. Your note prodded me to start a project I've been meaning to do for a long time: put a properly wikified version of the plan on Wikisource. I started today (just OCR and basic section formatting so far) -- have a look if you get the chance, and feel free to pitch in if you like! Lots of formatting and spelling errors to fix.

Also, here is one of my favorite Portland historic figures: George W. Joseph -- wonder if you happen to have any info about him? I wasn't able to turn up too much in my research, though I did learn that his son did his thesis about him at Reed College; haven't managed to look it up yet, though. -Peteforsyth (talk) 00:26, 20 July 2010 (UTC)
